Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Online On-Demand

23.3 CEUs


Lean techniques eliminate wasteful activities, while Six Sigma is a disciplined method for meeting customers’ expectations and eliminating defects in any process. IISE’s Lean Six Sigma Training offers the unique approach of weaving both lean and Six Sigma methodologies into a seamless certificate program that can help you achieve substantial improvements in your organization. By completing this course of study, you will gain a solid general knowledge of the theory, composition and implementation of a lean Six Sigma initiative. You will also become proficient in all of the analytical tools necessary to define, measure, analyze, improve, implement and control improvement projects. 


The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Online On-Demand has been really good. I am happy with the way the dashboard works and the interactive parts. Thank you for everything.
